Creative Arts Inclusion Programs


Encouraging Social Skills through Creative Arts Therapy

An Inclusion Program is an afternoon program facilitating development of social skills for children with varying disabilities. Our school is already an inclusive environment in which children with varying disabilities and typical children are interacting daily in the classroom. Children with disabilities in other schools spend significantly less time in interactions with their peers than do typically developing children.

What are the goals of the program?

Our goal is to facilitate creative arts therapy sessions and classroom activities that promote dynamic interactions between children and the environment.

How will I know about my child’s day?

When picking up your child at 5:30pm, I will personally be giving you brief feedback about his/her day. By 8:00pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, you will receive an e-mail us with a more detailed account of your child’s afternoon.

I understand that evenings are a precious time for families and I do not want to interrupt that. A response to the e-mail is not required, but please feel free to respond with any questions and concerns about your child’s day via e-mail. You will always receive a response within 24 hours.
